Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in Clinical Risk Groups as follows:-

Asplenia or Dysfunction of the Spleen
Asthma
Atrial Fibrilation
Cancer
Chronic Heart Disease
Chronic Kidney Disease
Chronic Liver Disease
Chronic Neurological Disease
COPD
Diabetes
Immunosuppressed
Pregnant Women
Carers
Over 65's

These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu

February 2017 - Update: The flu vaccination season is now over, however we do still have stocks available.  If you are pregnant, it is advisable to have the vaccination done.
